Free Advanced Lifestyle Coach Training Opportunity
Participant registration is now open for our free advanced lifestyle coach training opportunity for 2021. This year we are not offering webinars, but a live bootcamp (workshop style) training opportunity with DTTAC! This training opportunity is for staff who are already trained National DPP Coaches.

This is a live training opportunity on Zoom which will require active listening and participation in the bootcamp. Click on the links to the right to register as well as to view the flyer that includes registration instructions.

This training is sponsored by the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services and is intended for invited participants only! 

As a Lifestyle Coach delivering the National DPP in North Carolina, you are invited to join the two-part DTTAC virtual advanced training for FREE! Participating in this DTTAC-facilitated training will enhance your skills and knowledge around facilitating the National DPP Lifestyle Change Program. Learn new ways to manage challenging individual and group dynamics in both in-person and distance modalities, while sharing and learning with others in an interactive format.

  • "Advanced Facilitation Skills" on February 9th
  • "Facilitating Program Retention" on February 16th
When you click "Enroll" you automatically register for both sessions, however, we encourage you to enroll even if your availability only allows you to attend one session. Breaks will be taken throughout the 3-hour virtual session, however, you must attend the full LIVE 3-hour training to receive a certificate of completion. CEs are not offered for these sessions.
